I am currently un-ranked but once upon a time ago i was Diamond 1 division.
i cant get verified on here for sum reason and even if i did, the diamond 1 would not show since it was so long ago.
i am to busy playing fighters on console, that i don't have the time for ranked anymore!
i currently only play for fun now, due to my obligation with NetherRealmStudios Mortal Kombat. I play professionally on the Playstation consoles PS3 and PS4. i have played MK1, 2,3 UMK3, MK9 for NRS. and will be playing MKX upon release!
NOTE: i am no longer Diamond 1, i consider myself NO RANK DUE to my inactivity! i am currently Un-ranked as of now and will be for the remainder of the next few years!
The Twisted Treeline
The Twisted Treeline is a two lane Field of Justice, released shortly before the game officially launched.
October 27, 2009: Released publicly in practice games Practice games
March 30, 2010: Released for normal games on .
The Twisted Treeline map was reworked, and the new version released with patch V188.8.131.52 on October 17th, 2012 . It was previously located near Zaun, but was retroactively relocated to the Shadow Isles.
Two lanes to fight your way to the enemy base.
A jungle populated by neutral monsters of varying degrees of toughness.
Powerful turrets defend key areas on the map. You must confront these in addition to your enemies if you are to make headway toward victory.
Two bases at opposite sides of the map, populated by a shop, a nexus and one turret to defend the nexus.
A Ghost Relic is located in the middle of the map.
Two altars situated on both sides of the jungle. An altar is sealed for 90 seconds after capturing it.
New items to complement its fast-paced gameplay, and 825 base starting gold.
Work with your teammates to use the close lanes as a chance to kill enemy Champions as a team.
The basic strategy is to have 2 players laning on the bottom and 1 player laning on the top, allowing for one stronger player to develop ahead of the other 2 and have a large advantage when ganking the bottom lane enemies. Laning should not continue for too long though as it is much quicker to level and gain gold from ganking enemies once you are strong enough.
The more competitive strategy is to have 2 players laning at the top and 1 laning at the bot. This setup has better VilemawSquare.png Vilemaw (and jungle in general) control. If there are 2 champions on 1 lane, only one of them should farm, a farmed champion + support are more useful in teamfights than 2 unfarmed champions.
Another viable setup is two solo lanes with a jungler. The jungle remake on Twisted Treeline made mobs more tough and there are not that many viable junglers now.
When champions that are effective at jungling are played in top lane, killing jungle monsters to outlevel your opponents and get neutral monster buffs is a strategy that is commonly used.
The jungle area in Twisted Treeline is good not only to sneak on the opponent but also to outsmart them by running away or baiting them into a bad position.
AD carries are viable on Twisted Treeline, but they must be protected by team like on Summoner's Rift. Roles of champions are more or less the same as in 5v5, but a setup with a AD carry should have enough cc to make him/her safe.
A critical area is the lair of Vilemaw , located at the top of the map. It is a high value objective, so pay close attention to the location of enemy champions so that you are aware when they attempt to take him down. Keep in mind that the revised Twisted Treeline's shop does not carry wards, so vigilance is your only means of protecting the spider from the other team.
Although wards do not exist in the shop, some champions like Caitlyn, Heimerdinger, Maokai, Nidalee, Shaco, Teemo, and Zyra have abilities that can be effectively used as wards.
